We offer clients the complete range of services for acquiring, protecting, enforcing, defending, and commercializing all types of IP rights.

The main service areas are:

Our versatile team of IP litigation experts has secured winning results for clients in several landmark cases involving disputes related to patents, trademarks, copyright and unfair business practices. In addition to litigating cases before domestic courts, we are well-versed in arbitration proceedings.

We advise our clients on a wide range of strategic IP issues, commercial agreements, employee invention policies, freedom-to-operate and validity opinions as well as on trade secrets related matters.

We continuously assist well-known brand owners and clients engaged in the manufacture, wholesale and retail of goods with the drafting of manufacturing, licensing, distribution, agency, franchising and merchandising agreements. Some of the key market sectors include electronics, ICT, chemicals, cosmetics, pharma and food industries.
